Schuylkill River Trail

love it!

October, 2021 by rosejacquelynn

This is the first huge trail I've been able to find. It's great! I love how easy it is to walk. I usually start where the parking lot is on pawlings or on station and I walk towards oaks near mill road. I'm just starting out walking and it's great for a beginner.

D&L Trail

Great ride north from Glen Onoko, with a few caveats...

October, 2021 by jsshoemaker826

Oct 11, 2021. Parked in Glen Onoko parking lot. Lots of parking, but we could not find any toilets anywhere. Seems like with all that parking for visitors, the town or park should at least provide some porta-potties. We rode north for about 15 miles. Almost all of the trail was in great condition. There were a few spots near Glen Onoko with very loose fill that required walking (32 mm wide tires). Very nice scenery, and not crowded on a holiday Monday. Nice facilities at the Rockport trailhead. Overall a great ride!

Enola Low Grade Trail

Beautiful Fall Bike Ride

October, 2021 by kdenikend

Nice (approx 20 mile) out and back bike ride on a beautiful fall day. Appreciated the well maintained mostly level gravel pathway. Left from Quarryville area parking lot and rode to the Martic Forge closure. Many birds crossed the path as well as woolly bear caterpillars. Nice to know that there are 2 bike stations along the way if needed. We'll be back!

Cumberland Valley Rail Trail

Nice trail but a shame it cant be completed

October, 2021 by mrsmith4119

Very nice trail in Newville down to Shippensburg. Being from Carlisle, the 1-mile section is also nice but just not long enough. While I respect Tom Garrity's land rights, it is really a shame that he has prevented the connection of the Carlisle section to the rest of the trail. It really would be a community enhancement to be able to take my kids on a trail and not have drive so far. I lived near the Schuylkill River trail at one time and it was something that everyone really appreciated.

Great Allegheny Passage

The spectacular GAP...

October, 2021 by 7s5a692x35

In Pittsburgh, if you are cycling enthusiast, you must experience Bicycle Heaven - It is a nonprofit, private collection with over 5,000 complete bikes and even more bicycle parts that it is overwhelming. Some bikes date back to the late 1800s to the present.

Departing Pittsburgh’s concrete jungle, I highly recommend that you have the GAP route available on a GPS device as it is marked but you can miss the signs as you are focused on the traffic. Once on the gravel portion, it is an easy navigation exercise!

At the trailheads, there were plenty of new bicycle repair/air pump stations.

The illuminated 3,000’+ Savage Tunnel was an amazing experience as was experiencing the Mason Dixon Line.

Also, confirm (call) your dining options along the trail as even if sites on the internet say they will be open during your visit, you may be disappointed and going hungry due to staffing issues.

Ironton Rail-Trail

Beautiful trail to skate on--just one bad crossing...

October, 2021 by ajazzfan

I did a portion of this trail, Whitehall trail head to East Church Street. It is mostly flat until you hit the loop section, that was a short hill, but a little steep. The only problem I had was crossing 2nd Street--extremely rough pavement, it's like they milled the road and never finished it! Except for that crossing the rest of the trail was fine. Plenty of parking at the trailhead, but there are more parking areas further up the trail as well. I didn't see any public restrooms, there are a few portable toilets along the trail. Plenty of benches and other seating areas along the trail, but no water fountains--make sure you bring enough water! There is a shooting range next to the trail that was Very active while I was skating, some people may be bothered by this, I wasn't. I went in the morning and there were other people on the trail but it was not crowded.

Allegheny National Forest - Minister Creek Trail

even cool in the summer

October, 2021 by aj_genetic

This trail is a beautifully wooded and a somewhat challenging trail. The solitude and cool air even in summertime along the creek make it a perfect warm weather trail!

C&I Spur to Nanty Glo and back to Vintondale - Oct 2, 2021

October, 2021 by pstephentriad

We started at the trail head just outside Vintondale where the C&I Spur splits off. It was a beautiful sunny day. The first 4-5 miles of the C&I spur is in great shape and a very nice ride along the creek. At Vic Miller Road there is a short on-road segment to what looks like a very new or refurbished section of the C&I extension. This section is very nice. It travels over some bridges and forested lands. The trail is in perfect condition. There were a lot of other bikers, walkers, and ebikers on the trail. Very friendly.
After another 8 miles the trail dead ends on a residential street. (North St.). A little bit of on-road riding gets you to Expedite St and then Cardiff Rd. Cardiff Rd is all downhill into Nanty Glo. Cardiff Rd. has a bit more traffic. But going this way, it is all downhill and you are in Nanty Glo in 5-10 minutes. We had a beer and a very nice meal in town, then took the the mainline trail back to Vintondale. This is a great trail. I hope to return and ride into Ebensburg.

Big Woods Trail

Scenic trail coming together

October, 2021 by jmcginnis12@gmail.com

Situated in the rolling hills of southeast Berks and northwest Chester County, the Big Woods Trail will link several parks and historic sites when completed.
A work in progress, the trail will connect the Schuylkill River Trail to the borough of Elverson when completed. As of 2021, three, disconnected segments of the multi-use trail are finished.
The northern segment begins at the Schuylkill River Trail in the village of Monocacy and winds its way up a grassy hillside to Crusher Road. This section is noted for its rolling pasturelands and panoramic views of the valley below.
The middle segment starts a few miles to the south at the Hopewell Iron Furnace National Historic Site off Park Road. The centerpiece of this site is a restored 19th century-era furnace, which was fed by charcoal produced from the trees of the surrounding Big Woods and used to smelt iron from nearby mines. Trail users should check out the grounds before heading southwest on the greenway, which passes through the woods and connects the Historical Site to the adjacent French Creek State Park. This section also connects to the Horseshoe Trail and the State Park's own network of footpaths and follows the south shoreline of Hopewell Lake, ending at the park's main parking lot and recreation complex.
A shorter, southern segment of the trail extends for about a quarter mile along an abandoned rail line in the borough of Elverson. This segment begins at Park Ave. and extends to Route 23 (Main Street), and is noted for several restored historical buildings.
When the trail is eventually completed, it will link the Schuylkill River and Horseshoe trails as well as several other historical sites and open space areas. It may also be extended further south into Chester County via the old Reading to Coatesville rail line.

Oil Creek State Park Trail

Peddled this trail this week and it was a very enjoyable paved trail with alot of history along the way. The slope was a gradual incline to the Drake Well Museum and and enjoyable down grade back to the trailhead at Oil Creek State Park.

East Branch Trail (PA)

An All Seasons Trail

October, 2021 by aj_genetic

I have lived near this trail for a lot of years and changing seasons. Whether enjoying a bike ride in the rain as the cool mist drizzles on your face and wets the earth, Or a stroll through the leaves as the colors change and the leaves fall all around you with family, Donning a pair of snow shoes or boots or even cross country skis, as the soft white flakes softly touch down, Running on a warm and sunny day, with a breeze cooling your sweat glistened body- All this and the pure clean air and bright blue sky Enjoying the outdoors and yet still being in a small town area with all its charm and novel Amish neighbors All this and more is why I love this trail Year round! Walking your furry friend through the changing seasons, Catching a glimpse of an Amish buggy as you go, or a group of Amish children playing-shy, but curious onlookers,
